The 2017 Edition
Highlights in this year’s 24th edition include Paolo Virzi’s hugely successful Like Crazy and the Kafka-esque comedy Ears which was one of the discoveries of the Venice Film Festival.
The Festival also pays tribute to the late Ettore Scola,
who died last year, with three of his finest films including the Oscar-nominated A Special Day teaming Sophia Loren with Marcello Mastroianni.
Audiences in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Inverness and Aberdeen can discover what has been happening in il cinema italiano from 3 to 16 March.
The Italian Film Festival is co-directed by Allan Hunter and Richard Mowe, and is staged in collaboration with the Italian Institute in Edinburgh (founding partners), the Italian Consul General, Creative Scotland, Sarti restaurants in Glasgow, Zucca in Edinburgh and Cinecittà Luce.
